Child Protection Week and Tully NAIDOC Street Procession


Child Protection Week runs from September 5 – 11, and the focus of Queensland’s campaign is ‘Protecting Children is everybody’s business.’ The Child Protection Week Committee coordinates Child Protection Week in Queensland under the auspicing body of ACT for Kids.

This year the Tully Support Centre (TSC) partnered with Mamu Health Service to incorporate Child Protection week activities into the delayed Tully NAIDOC Street Procession on Thursday, September 23. The Street procession will commence from the Tully Support Centre at 9:30 am – with the march starting at 10 am – travelling to the Tully Lions Park, where there will be a family day.

The Family Day will include a free BBQ, Jumping Castle, Face Painting, Lara the Clown, Arts and Crafts, Emergency Services Displays, QLD Health stall, COVID-19 Information, Tully Library activities, and so much more!

The TSC will be helping to raise awareness of how children feel safe in our communities. We will be asking young people and their families to help us build a safety wall of people in their community who are safe if they are in danger, need someone to talk to, or need help. We will also have balloons, wrist bands and stickers to give away.

So, bring yourself and your children down to Lion’s park and enjoy a great day out.

If you have any concerns about a child in our community, you can contact the Far North Queensland Regional Child Safety Intake service on 1300 684 062. Alternatively, if you would like to contact your local Family and Child Connect service, you can call 13FAMILY (13 32 64) and be referred to the closest office. Of course, you can always call the TSC on 40681004 and speak to one of our support workers.
